Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie is a must to add to your summer reading list. It is topical and thoughtful as well as being unputdownable.
Home Fire is based on the Greek tragedy of Antigone, following the story of three siblings whose father’s reputation has marred their upbringing and adult life. The book is split into sections following the inner thoughts, emotions and actions of each character.
Shamsie brilliantly explores radicalisation, manipulation, seduction and betrayal weaving them all together to make a rich and compelling story that leaves you racing to the final page. She eloquently describes familial love and strife, the idea of duty over love and illustrates that the ancient ritual of burial is revered above all. This novel won the Women’s Prize for Fiction last year and was long listed for the Man Booker Prize the year before that = a must read ❤️📚 @riverheadbooks @womensprize
